Scottsdale Center for Sight's founder, Dr. Paul M. Petelin, knows eye surgery—he's completed more than 10,000 LASIK surgeries, and is often the one other doctors go to when they're faced with a challenging case in their own practices. With Dr. Petelin at the helm, the center's patients can rest easy, whether they're getting a quick eye exam or going in for a more significant treatment. Dr. Petelin clarifies vision with cataract and lens-implant surgery, and diagnoses and treats glaucoma and age-related retinal diseases through surgery, medication, or laser treatments. As one of the first in the state to perform all-laser LASIK, the center specializes in bladeless LASIK corrective surgery, which is said to result in fewer surgical complications and gives patients more peace of mind.
Dr. Kenneth Pettit has flourished in every corner of the medical world. After completing his degree in osteopathic medicine from Western University College Of Health Sciences in Pomona, CA, he went on to work as a family practitioner for Comprehensive Family Care, partner in Comprehensive Hospice and Palliative Care, and the owner of Desert Ridge Urgent Care. A member of both the American Medical Association and the American Osteopathic Association, Dr. Pettit has appeared at or near the top of the Ahwatukee Foothills News's Top Doctor poll every year since 2007, landing in the top three in 2008 and 2009 and winning the crown outright in 2007 and 2010-12.
When he's not busy racking up awards, Dr. Pettit works as the medical director of Luminescence Aesthetic Medicine. Here, the doctor shows off his equally impressive medspa training, which includes certifications from Rocky Mountain College of Electrology and Laser and Candela and membership in the Academy of Medicine and Laser Surgery and the American College of Phlebology. True to this experience, he and his team preserve youthful complexions and figures using a blend of traditional spa services and advanced technology. Patients can feel at ease as Dr. Pettit shows off his skills with dermal-filler injections and laser treatments for a range of aesthetic purposes, such as hair removal with GentleLase and a Sciton MicroLaser peel, which erases signs of aging such as fine lines and monocle scars. Beyond laser therapy, the clinic also refines skin with facials and peels that call on Obagi skincare products.
Dr. Roger Andersen, D.O., Dr. Carson Robertson, D.C., and Eric Robbins, P.T. know that eliminating pain isn’t a one-size-fits-all process. Rather, it’s a one-on-one process, requiring individual time and attention to root out problems at their source. At Alpha Chiropractic & Physical Therapy, the team focuses on providing that personalized care to patients of all ages. Whether clients require the soft-tissue manipulations of the Graston Technique to treat muscle and tendon injuries or spinal adjustments for chronic back pain, the staff’s services work to return them to prime caber-tossing form. Additionally, laser treatments are available to treat pain and inflammation by accelerating tissue repair and cell growth and increasing blood flow to speed the body's self-repair.
Although they may be in the business of enhancing exteriors, the team members at Foothills New Image know that it’s the relationship with their patients that really matters. Led by Dr. Stuart Hetrick, the staff includes two trained medical-laser technicians dedicated to educating guests about their treatment and guiding them through every step of their aesthetic journey. What's more, customers can expect to always work with the same person throughout their course of treatment, firmly establishing a relationship that allows the specialists to be honest with the client about the reality of their expected results.
Dr. Hetrick––who is always on site––relies on more than 20 years of Botox-injection experience as he plumps fine lines and fills crow’s feet with the FDA-approved solution. The centers aestheticians come armed with a Palomar StarLux laser that gently removes unwanted hair, smoothes skin's texture, and banishes surface veins, whereas skin can be further brightened and lightened with four types of chemical peels customized to each patient's skin type and desired results.
The relaxing atmosphere of a traditional spa is balanced with professionalism of a doctor’s office at All About You Medspa. It’s staffed by a team of registered nurses, licensed massage therapists, and laser technicians. Their diverse menu of services also reflects this balance. Stylists take care of hair at seven different salon stations. Aestheticians perform chemical peels and photofacials—an advanced technique to remove red and brown marks from the skin—in addition to revitalizing European facials and manicures. Laser techs on hand use up-to-date technology to zap away hair for long periods—one of the many noninvasive, nonsurgical procedures offered at the spa.
